Millen Method

The Millen Method is more a philosophical and practical approach than a simple formula or recipe for human interactions. From my earliest experiences, my father and mother taught us (I am one of nine of their children) to value ourselves and others equally.

The Millen Method seeks to build on those lessons and those of the many mentors I have had in life and apply them to all human interactions, especially those in my clinical practice.

Our interactions, with ourselves and between ourselves and others, should enhance our health and performance and be mutually beneficial.

We are challenged in these interactions to be thoughtful and open to how we as individuals and others respond to the interactions. For these interactions to be fruitful and beneficial often requires dialogue.

A process of listening to understand and speaking to be understood. And then learning how to make adaptations that lead to mutually beneficial growth and development.

This concept of working to develop a “dialogue” with our own body’s is a central concept to the Millen Method. As simple as this dialogue seems, it is not easy.

We have developed various techniques to enhance this conversation with our bodies. We are trying to change a series of body monologues to a dialogue.


We Treat The Person, Not Just Parts

Our focus is on healing your back while enhancing your pain free movement and function. To stop back pain and the chronic re-injury process, you will need to develop a clear understanding of how your body is reacting to the movement or exercise.

This is a dialogue. This is a conversation few of us have been taught.

Learning to adapt or alter our actions based on our body’s responses is central to the Millen Method concept of treatment.

We treat the person, not just parts. We believe our primary goal is to teach you to understand your own body and its current state of health so you can be a better consumer of what you choose to do to improve it.

Our teaching focuses on individuals learning to develop their conscious connections (access) to movements that are often subconscious and habitual.
